Nonduality: The Varieties of Expression


Starting February 1, 2018, Nonduality.com will operated by James Traverse.

James Traverse has over 40 years of experience in the art and science of yoga. He is a yoga educator and writer who communicates the direct approach to understanding your true nature. This experiential means, which is founded on a switchover from conceiving to purely perceiving, flowered principally out of Jamesí studies with his teacher, Jean Klein, who initiated him in the ways of Advaita Vedanta and Kashmiri Shaivism. His other influences include the works of J. Krishnamurti, David Bohm, Rumi, Adi Shankaracharya, Ramana Maharshi, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, Atmananda Krishnamenon and the yoga of B K S Iyengar, whose method he studied intensely for the first 15 years of his yoga journey.

Nonduality

There is no such thing as willful "activism"...

Only Nondual Activism

Ed Arrons

While "I" sometimes get the impression that "I" am the activist who decides my actions, I soon realize that the action is always begun prior to the decision to act. If the identified "me" as the actor and decision maker is indeed an illusion, then there is no such person as an "activist" who decides what acts will be undertaken. By that understanding there is no such thing as willful "activism"...only nondual activism.


Still Point Activism: A Radical View?

What might be considered radical by this view is in seeing the activism as a movement in society raising consciousness in the masses to the level of those who abide in the still point of awareness. The movement is simply activated by the presence and understanding of still point awareness in everyday, face-to-face dialogue.

"When all is quiet, utterly still, as if the whole world has stopped, time has stopped, all movement inside has stopped, you have come to a still point. That still point is the goal of meditation. And out of the experience of that still point within you everything else arises as a by-product: bliss, love, compassion.... All that is beautiful, all that really makes you meaningful, all that gives you music and poetry, all that makes your heart dance with joy, all that transforms your life from misery into a celebration."
......OSHO


A deepening chasm in the politics of separation?

deeply listening from the still point silence

unseen, unheard, the earth-people rumble

a change of tones arise

uncertainty rises at the bottom

knowing rises at the midway

awareness rises above it all

where are you, my friend?
